Two men are wanted in connection with the death of a woman who was hit by a car.

Alison McBlaine, 36, died in hospital on Thursday after she was hit by a Fiat Punto Grande which police believe deliberately mounted the pavement in Blackburn, Lancashire, at about 7. 45 pm on Tuesday.

Detectives investigating her murder are appealing for information to find Kaylib Connolly, 18, and Dean Qayum, 20.

A second pedestrian, a 26 – year-old man, was also hit in the collision on Whalley Banks and suffered serious injuries.

The car failed to stop at the scene and was later found on Lower Hollin Bank Street with significant front end damage.

Three people arrested by police remain in custody.

Detective Chief Inspector Lee Wilson said: “Connolly and Qayum are wanted in connection with this extremely serious offence.

“They know police want to speak to them and I believe they are being harbored in and around the Blackburn area at this time.

” I would warn anyone who is protecting them, or helping to hide them, that we will identify this during our investigation and they will also be arrested and prosecuted.

“My thoughts and those of the team engaged on this inquiry remain with Alison’s loved ones, in particular her 12 – year-old son Reagan. “

Anyone with information should contact police on 101 or call Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
